In 2021, we also marked the tenth anniversary of Tim Cook’s leadership as CEO. It has been a remarkable decade for Apple, and in 2021 Mr. Cook was granted an equity award for the first time since he was promoted to the CEO role in 2011. As discussed in more detail below, the 2021 RSU award granted to Mr. Cook is better aligned with the performance-based and time-based RSUs awarded to our other named executive officers and provides substantial equity incentives aligned with the interests of our shareholders.
